1. WE need to focus on VOTING the pos out..Dems need to continue to pass bills for the people -

Mcconnell will not bring them to a vote..our focus - vote for a majority DEM Senate, and WH 2020, hold the house....the house will be ready - having done their job, for the people, WE THE PEOPLE need to VOTE - our country depends on it.....

Infrastructure, education, equal rights, voting rights, immigration, WE CAN DO THIS!! -

When the house deems it appropriate, and consider what the Mueller Report (unredacted) actually reveals..impeach on FACTS... I refuse to lay down...your weapon IS YOUR VOTE (as she preaches to the choir) -

5. WE can do both. I hate this idea that the Ds need to give up on/ignore the 2020 elections if they

move forward with impeaching that asshole.

2. They should hold hearings

And see what they turn up. You need to get the people behind you before you start talking about impeachment

6. Impeach, yes, but not right away

This Senate will never remove him from office. Prefer a strategy whereby the Dems obtain his financial info and go nuclear on his criminal financial shenanigans, in parallel to their impeachment hearings. A big fat smoking gun of insurance/tax/bank fraud or money laundering - something that even the GOP won't be able to ignore or excuse. Something that will spell electoral annihilation in November 2020 because even Trump voters understand that a billionaire cheating on his taxes or defrauding financial institutions is tainted goods. At which point, McTurtle tells Trump that he's going to be removed from office by the Senate if he doesn't resign or, perhaps, agree not to run in 2020.

I think that's what it'll take to excise the Trump malignancy: impeachment proceedings for obstruction in combination with disclosures of financial fraud.

his criminality. They will fight everything.

17. That's why impeachment should start now, my understanding its hard to stonewall with impeachment

... hearings than just regular congressional investigations where everyone gets to lie to congress.

20. Pre-impeachment hearings would be better....we are supposed to get documents but

may not, if we have a failed impeachment , we will have Trump claiming exoneration. Do we have the votes in the House. And what about the new moderates?

8. Censure

They only are going to at best be able to bring articles of impeachment up in the house. They don't have the votes to convict in the Senate, if McConnell even allows it to come up.

So they can only get halfway to impeachment. And the media, and Republicans will scream about it being a failure.

They can censure him in the house without the Senate.

Of course this scumbag should be impeached and removed from the office, but it's not going to happen. Bringing up articles of impeachment and not being able to convict is basically the same as Censure, but censure would be complete.

10. The lack of conviction will be hailed as exoneration

I think many here think the Senate will cave when they see the evidence but they won't. Republicans by and large don't care if Trump is a criminal. Thus, the Senate won't either,

15. Not his decision, anymore than he could refuse

to hold a vote on the House-passed bill to reverse tRumpís wall emergency EO.

I donít know why I bother responding to people who have no knowledge of or interest in how government works.

16. My understanding is impeachment brings powers to the house that they don't have with just subpoenas

... and regular house investigations where everyone gets to lie to congress.

Financial crimes, particularly, and that is going to take some time. I want his "brand" to reek of flop-sweat before we hang him out to dry.

23. Since the Senate won't get rid of him the goal should be to expose him before the election

Investigate, expose his sorry ass along with McConnell and the whole corrupt GOP. We can only do what we can with the power we have. If the senate wasn't so screwed up this would be a slam dunk - but it isn't.

Expose, expose, expose.. That is our best weapon.

28. Investigate and expose. Get GOP hypocrites on record.

Hammer away at the lying, hypocrisy, and corruption. If a few Republicans sign on to impeachment, then impeach.
